  • @chetan3972 which palace are you talking about? And what is your nationality?
  • I stayed at Fawlty Towers in Livingstone (Zambia) and had such a great experience. Good budget accommodation but a little better than the average backpackers (and with such a nice pool, which is very welcome in that climate!). Jollyboys is ideal if …
  • Just to add weight to Terry's answer: definitely a scam!
  • Alethia is absolutely right, you can fly anywhere in the Schengen zone now that your visa has been awarded.
  • Hi Sally, I agree with Mike, both sides are great! Check out these travel guides for Zambia and Zimbabwe - maybe they'll help you decide. If the various attractions don't sway you, the best idea is to check out the hotels, backpackers etc available …
  • @ravshan thanks for your post. I am just wondering if there are any areas of Uzbekistan which you would advise travellers to avoid? I understand that the country is stable and relatively safe, but you have some dangerous neighbours... are there any …
  • That's very interesting @cristotel, thanks for sharing that info. We get people asking about returning to South Korea after various bans very often on this forum, but it has always been impossible for us to answer them - nobody knows except South Ko…
  • @JensenDrake2, what question are you responding to here? This is a thread about getting a marriage visa - you are talking about travel visas. Please limit your responses to useful info which answers people's questions or asks a question of your own.…
  • I don't think there's any big disagreement here, but I will say that as a non-European travelling with a Schengen visa I have been asked to present my passport several times at airports in Europe. Travelling between the Netherlands and Italy for ins…
  • Hi Mathieu, From countless traveller anecdotes I can assure you that Machu Picchu is still one of the most magical and worthwhile tourist attractions in Peru, despite the crowds. What I am hearing more and more often is that the Inca Trail is bec…
  • Hi LaurenceJ Sadly I haven't been to Jamaica, but a good friend of mine went a year or two ago, and she loved Kingston. I think it really depends what you are looking for: the Jamaican capital is renowned for it's fun nightlife, so if you are looki…
  • Just to add weight to what Alethia has said - I have never heard of a successful visa appeal! Much better to just re-apply.
  • Hi Jasond, Tunisia is warm enough to visit year-round. In fact, many people prefer to visit between October and May when the temperatures are warm but more comfortable than in summer, which gets very hot. It all depends what kind of holiday you wan…
  • UsmanRao, please stop posting the same question every few minutes! I'm sure you will get a response if you just wait a bit - re-posting has no effect.
  • Bhatti, please limit your posts to practical info. This is not an appropriate place for name-calling and bullying. If you think there is no way Vincent will be able to study in Pakistan just say that. You will be banned if you continue to post racis…
  • Nobody can help you unless you tell us what your nationality is? Visa requirements vary according to nationality. Also, why are you keen to visit Pakistan?
  • Oh and if you do go, please pop back onto the forum to let us know how the trip was and a bit about safety in Venezuela! Good luck.
  • Hi Mike, I have never been to Venezuela myself, but from what I have heard crime in Caracas is indeed pretty dire. You particularly need to avoid protests and marches which frequently get violent. Margarita Island is a popular resort area and much m…
  • Hi Zarria, Alethia is right, your best bet is for your boyfriend to come visit you in Kenya, rather than the other way around. If your relationship does result in marriage then you will be able to visit the Netherlands.
  • Hi Mathieu, Weather-wise, you should be fine to explore Sumatra in April, as it is the dry season for that region, but note that much of Indonesia experiences monsoon rains between October and April which could make travelling more complicated. Ch…
  • Again, yes, they are both Schengen countries so if Italy awards you a Schengen visa you can visit Spain any time that visa is valid.
  • You won't have any problem. Once a Schengen visa is awarded you are fully entitled to visit any Schengen country. You are doing the right thing by applying through Italy as you are staying there longest.
  • Hi there,Check out this Indonesia Travel Guide, which has a Bali section, and will provide basic health, safety, climate info and the like. Alethia is right, if you are inexperienced travellers it may be easier to arrange a package tour.
  • As Alethia has already confirmed for you in another thread, once your Schengen visa has been awarded you are entitled to visit any Schengen country for the period it is valid.
  • If you have a valid multiple-entry Schengen visa you are fully entitled to travel to any Schengen country regardless of which country issued the visa. You should have no problem at all.
  • Gosh, Alethia is right. I had forgotten about Ebola. Hopefully you can get an honest and useful answer from them! 
  • Terry is right Kizito, it is really impossible for us to know exactly why you were refused. All over the world, border control are entitled to deny entry to travellers with valid visas if they are unconvinced that the visitor will be leaving the cou…
  • You should have absolutely no problem. Although travellers are encouraged to apply for a visa through the country they are spending the most time in or entering first, once a Schengen visa has been issued you are fully entitled to move between any o…
  • Hi there,Alethia is correct and I'm afraid you will have to get expert advice on this. However, I can tell you that I recently got married and as I had my South African ID stolen earlier in the year I applied for a new ID with only my marriage certi…
